Solution

The correct option is C a-(i), b-(ii), c-(iii), d-(iv)

Apple is actually a false fruit. The main edible part of an apple is actually juicy receptacle of a flower i.e., thalamus.

The tomato though commonly classified as a vegetable is really a fruit, a berry in fact. In this, the edible parts are pericarp (epicarp, mesocarp and endocarp) and placenta.

Banana is a berry. It develops from monocarpellary or multicarpellary syncarpous ovary. Epicarp makes the rind of the fruit. The edible portion of banana is mesocarp and endocarp.

Mango (Mangifera indica) of family Anacardiaceae is a drupe. The edible part in mango is mesocarp.
